Friday morning, 2 am to be exact, I took my daughter to work (as much as I always say there's no way in hell I'm going near a mall on Black Friday, there I was). I couldn't understand why they scheduled a minor to work at 2 IN THE MORNING, but it was supposed to be a fun shift with goodies and male dancers (think beach types, not Chippendale's!), so my girl jumped at the opportunity to be a part of this all-night event getting time-and-a-half for mingling with co-workers and crazy, late-night shoppers. Not only did she work until 7 am, she came home, slept an hour and was back to work the 10 - 3 shift, with no regrets.
Good for her, right? lol I have to admire her because I would NOT have agreed to that second shift after pulling an all-nighter.
I've been getting back into reading and this is the latest book I downloaded on the Kindle app for the iPad:
It's received great reviews but I haven't gotten to the part where KR meets Mick Jagger yet, and that's when I think it'll get interesting. How could it NOT?? Just look at this character!
I bought a new stylus...with an artist brush, which I LOVE!
I'm using it on my iPad (which has become a new baby in my life), and this little gem works beautifully with the Paper app by Fifty-Three. Of course, now that I bought it I learned they've come up with THIS...another thing to add to my Christmas wish list!
With a little experimentation I came up with a digital painting entitled, what else, "Cubanita in Paradise."
After posting it on Facebook, I sold two prints within a few hours. Facebook...it has its moments. ;)
Wishing you a merry holiday season full of love and good cheer! Off to visit you soon! xo
